#498 of 687 2007 Armada-AC not COLD
Jun 30, 2007 (8:56 pm)
Only 3,500 miles on my Armada. I have noticed that when I turn my AC on and after a couple min. my AC is not as cold as I thought it should be. A few wks back I have received a letter from Nissan Corp. stated that they have encounter an AC problem with the SUV and was told to bring to the dealer and have it repair. Anyone out there have simliar problem with the AC not being cold rather just cool???

Sounds like a bad alternator, have it repaired under warranty if you are still under warranty.

#502 of 687 replaced battery, will not start
Jul 23, 2007 (6:22 am)
I replaced my battery in my 2004 Armada. 2 days later, it will not start. I had a diagnostic run and they found no problem. Dead again this morning....Will not even turn over unless jumped. Help!! Only have 27,000 miles on vehicle. I have already suffered through the brake problem with the dealer and am not happy at the thought of having to go back there and fight for help.

Bring it back again and tell them what happened. They will figure it out, they just need to dig a little bit deeper. No doubt it's either a charging system problem and some electrical device, switch or short is draining the battery. A diagnostic scan would not neccesarily reveal all types of electrical problems.
#504 of 687 Brake Problem
Jul 23, 2007 (6:47 am)
I have a 2004 Armada LE. When the car was about 18 months old I started having the brake judders, brake light and ABS light going on and a severe steering wheel shake.
I took it to the dealer who said I needed an adjustment. That took care of it for a while. Vehicle had less than 12,000 miles on it. Problem came back with greater intensity. Had another "adjustment". Fast forward to March 2007. Spoke with a neighbor who had exact same vehicle and was inquiring about problem. He informed me that it was a problem and that I should take it back to where I purchased it. He said they are replacing the brakes free of charge. I contacted my dealer who acted like they had never heard of the problem. I dropped the car off and they later called me to say my brakes were shot and that it was going to cost $1,100.00 for new brakes. I declined.....
My husband tried to work with the dealer and they would not budge. Of course, it was out of the 12,000 mile warranty. We decided to try another dealership but before that happened I went out to do a short errand and the car would not go into reverse. I gave it a little gas and the brake pad fell off while backing out of my driveway with my 2 kids in the car. It scared the heck out of me. Since this was a Friday afternoon on a holiday weekend, I could not get the car into the dealership until late the next week. I called a friend of mine who is a mechanic, and he came over and said he could do the brakes for $200.00. He felt that they gave me the runaround, until the brakes were acrually worn. Turned out, when he went to replace the front passanger brake,he found the caliper leaking brake fluid. It ended up costing me $700.00 ($500 for the caliper). Bought the car in Mar 2004 but only has 27,900 miles on it.
Now it seems that I have a charging problem.....

I had a local shop run a more thorough diagnostic and they found a parasitic drawl coming from one of the computers. I called a different dealership than I have used in the past and they want to tow it in. I am worried about what they are going to find and if the warranty will cover it.

Warranty should be 3yr/36k on the computers and what not. I was going to suggest a parasitic draw. I installed a car computer/navigation/pc in my truck and when it doesn't turn off properly (it's windows XP so that happens sometimes) it will run down my battery.
As for the brakes there was a recall on the '04s to be upgraded to different rotors pads and a bracket for the caliper.

I have a 2007 Armada SE with only 4000 miles. I have notice some clunking noise when I made a changing shift from P to R or to D gear. Sometime I heard the clunking sometime not at all. If you're on a flat ground. It shift smoothly. On a not so hilly ground, just a little above flat like a driveway. It shift had a really clunking noise that seem to bother me all the time. I have a older legend 95 and it shift smoother than my Armada. Anyone have the same problem?
